9781851684656: Geography of Time

Although it is hard to remember in our clock-driven age, the concept of time is relative and flexible. Robert Levine points out that a cultures sense of time has profound consequences for an individual's psychological, physical, and emotional well-being. Travelling around the glope, in both past and present times, he describes "clock time" in opposition to both "nature time" - the rhythm of the sun and the seasons - and "event time" - the structuring of time around happenings. He argues that by learning to embrace these three different perceptions of time, by developing a "multi temporal" approach, one can enjoy a more flexible and rewarding life.

Review:

On time, out of time, time out, time is money--if our vernacular is any indication, the concept of time has certainly infiltrated American culture. Does everybody in the world share the same perception of time? In A Geography of Time, psychologist Robert Levine puts time to the test by sending teams of researchers all over the world to measure everything from the average walking speed to the time it takes to buy a stamp at the post office. Levine scatters his findings among engaging accounts of his own encounters with the various perceptions of time in different cultures. From the history of clocks to how people tell time today, A Geography of Time is jam-packed with "timely" information.

Descripción Oneworld/Viva Books Private Limited, 2007. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. Description : In this engaging and humorous book, eminent social psychologist Roberts Levine explores a dimension of our experience that we take for granted ? our experience of time. Taking us on an enchanting tour through the ages and around the world, we travel to Brazil, where to be three hours late is perfectly acceptable, and to Japan, were he finds a sense of the long-term that is unheard of in the West, as well as to remote places in the world where long-term that is unheard of in the West, as well as to remote places in the world where ?nature time?, the rhythms of the sun and the seasons, is the only time to live by. From the sundials of ancient Greece to the origins of ?clock time? in the Industrial Revolution, Levine asks, how do we use our time? Are we ruled by the clock? What does this do to our cities, our bodies? Perhaps, he argues, time as a human construct has come to define and constrain cultures, while instead we ought to function ?multitemporally?, each of us charting our own geography of time. Contents : Part 1 : Social Time : The Hearbeat of Culture ? Part II : Fast, Slow and the quality of Life ? Part III : Changing Pace Printed Pages: 258. Nº de ref. de la librería 87662
